While some people take their time choosing a job or career based on their passions or goals, others just want to know where they can get a job and when. During the economic downturn it was difficult to be picky, but now that things are looking up, the abundance of jobs from which to choose should continue to get better with each passing year.

Total employment is expected to increase by 15.3 million jobs during the 2008-18 decade, according to the most recent employment projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Job openings from replacement needs (when workers retire or otherwise leave their jobs) are projected to be more than double the number of openings due to economic growth.
